We are currently updating our glass catalogue webpages.
You are welcome to browse them but please remember they are a work in progress.


The Stained Glass Museum's Collection includes over 1,000 stained glass panels from both religious and secular buildings, from all parts of the British Isles. In addition to the many completed stained glass panels and windows, the Museum has a number of smaller trial-pieces of stained and painted glass, fragments and samples of glass material, many of which derived from artists' studios.

Preparatory Designs, Cartoons, Maquettes

The Museum has a small but significant collection of preparatory designs, cartoons and maquettes relating to nineteenth- and twentieth-century stained glass. These designs are sometimes displayed as part of temporary exhibitions.

Tools, materials and other miscellaneous objects

The Museum also has a collection of tools and materials related to the design and manufacture of glass, lead and stained glass windows. Many of these are on display in the main gallery.

Objects in the Museum's reserve collection are accessible via prior arrangement.
